C2C Training Update

Posted on January 29, 2013 by



Week 3 training report from Jim Gillson –

“The elite CBHCC cycling group is still a man down while Chester’s premier hairdresser attends the Barbados training camp, but perseveres none the less.

Cheese has made several daytime escapes onto the lanes of Cheshire since the last update. Contrary to popular news reports, there is no truth in the rumor that he was overtaken by the Briscoe Dairies milk float on its round on Thursday morning.

First team captain Seamus has had to return to his original bike, acquired from the postman on the set of Ballykissangel when he was a student. Despite this he remains bookies favourite for the day three race between Warren ‘perfect’ Goodwin and Donkey Kong Dixon (pictured above) who were both conspicuous by their absence this weekend.

Chairman Verno is still coming to terms with the power of his mid-wife’s bike and has surgically removed the bread basket at the front in favour of a back pack filled with Theakston’s Old Peculiar.

A full stewards enquiry has been called over Gillson’s performance this weekend. Eyewitnesses reported he overtook guest cyclist Tom Brickland (fresh from 2 hours sleep after clubbing in Liverpool) whilst freewheeling up a hill in Huxley.

Officials on the scene could only put it down to weight advantage!”
